Chevrolet Camaro 1967 Description

1967 Chevrolet Camaro Convertible LS1 T56 Pro Touring Restomod Body and Paint:Bid with confidence as there is absolutely no rust in this car. The bodywork and paint was done by KC Mathieu of KC's Paint Shop in Burleson. Texas and he knocked it out of the park. The paint is beautiful and looks like wet glass. You can check out his Facebook page under KcsPaintShop. KC is famous for his role as the resident painter at Richard Rawlings' Gas Monkey Garage in Dallas. Texas featured on the Discovery Channel's hit TV show. Fast N' Loud. This car was not painted at Gas Monkey Garage. It was painted at KC's personal paint shop. The paint color is a GM factory color. Nassau Blue (Bright Blue). which was available on Corvettes from 1997 to 2000. Paint code B9773. KC smoothed the firewall. eliminating all unnecessary holes and strangely enough. this is one of my favorite aspects of the car. A smooth firewall makes for such a clean look compared to a factory firewall. The entire bottom side of the new one-piece floor pan was seam sealed and coated in semi-gloss black POR-15 rust preventative coating. as well as the rear frame rails and wheel wells. POR-15 is some tough stuff. Read up on it if you're not familiar with it. It's a great product. The bottom of this car is exactly what you want to see when peaking under a classic car that you are considering for purchase. Engine and Transmission:The mildly cammed LS1 power plant and Tremec T56 6-speed manual transmission for this project were harvested together from a 2002 Pontiac Trans Am WS6. The actual mileage was 69. 85 at the time it was pulled and less than 500 flawless miles have been added since installation into the Camaro. If you're viewing this auction as a serious potential buyer then you probably know all the hype about swapping LS engines into classic cars. Let me tell you. if originality is not a concern. then there's no question that LS power is the way to go. These engines are notorious for their dependability and horsepower potential. Every hot rod owner loves the cool. timeless looks of a classic car but nobody wants to worry about being left stranded on the side of the road because of half-century-old technology under the hood. Get in this car. bump the key. and go. anywhere. Interior:The entire interior side of the one-piece floor plan and firewall was sprayed in Lizard Skin products for both heat and sound insulation. All new black 80/20 loop carpet from PUI Interiors was then laid down. The original GM dash-pad was re-covered by Al Knoch Interiors in Canutillo. Texas. The front seats were upgraded to 4th Gen Camaro seats (power driver seat). the rear seat is stock and all were covered in beautiful new black and white houndstooth seat covers from Year One. (Nothing screams classic like a houndstooth pattern). All new Metro weatherstrip seals. everywhere. The convertible top is also brand new. by Robbins. And. who could ignore the chrome Hurst shifter rising from the floor. just begging you to wind your way through all SIX gears while listening to the beautiful (and therapeutic) tones of the Magnaflow dual 2. 5" stainless exhaust system. This car sounds amazing. Suspension:The sub-frame was removed. sandblasted and powder-coated in semi-gloss black. All new body bushings. All new front suspension components. Lowered coil springs in the front and Hotchkis 1. 5" drop leaf springs in the rear with all new bushings. 8. 5 10-bolt rear end with 3. 42 posi differential. New custom drive shaft. Power disc brakes up front and rebuilt drums in the rear with all new components and new brake lines. Functioning emergency brake with all new components. Upgraded fast ratio power steering box. The wheels are Boyd Coddington Junk Yard Dogs. nbsp;Front: 17x8 and Rear: 18x9 Misc:All new American Autowire wiring harness (no electrical gremlins to chase). PSI Conversion engine harness for the LS swap. The "New Vintage USA" electric gauges beautifully and accurately display everything you need to see. New fuel lines. New fuel tank with internal fuel pump and sending unit. The new I-DID-IT tilt steering column was painted the body color by KC. New Grant steering wheel. I am sure I am missing some details as there is so much to cover on this car. I have a file folder that is probably 1" thick with receipts and lots of build pictures. I am not a dealer. just a guy that is selling his personal classic car to fund the next project. I built this car to keep but. as commonly happens in this hobby. my interest has changed. I would consider trade offers for a 55-72 Chevy C10 pickup truck. short wide bed and big back window.
